... is it the harmonic balancer via those 4 bolts? I'm trying to figure out if I have a bad harmonic balancer or a busted crank.

This is on an 89 5.0 by the way.

Fantastic! What's the best way to get that balancer off? I already have the pulley off but that balancer doesn't seem to want to budge at all.

You have to rent a puller from a patrs store. Its kind of a pain, but it will work. Dont cross-thread the puller, it sucks. Good luck.

The pulley is bolted to the harmonic balancer.
In THIS case, its a pulley (thru a spacer) to the Motorsport balancer:


Rent the tool (free) from Autozone.
And if you are having any trouble, then get a new balancer!!! Trust me, its broke (even if you dont know it yet).
